us that the suspect's name is paul anthony ciancia. c-i-a-n-c-i-a. they say he is 23 years old, born in february of 1990. a u.s. citizen who is living in the l.a. area. and as for the motive -- we're a long way from knowing that for certain. there is some indication, we're told, that he had strong anti-government views. that's based on some written material that we're told he was carrying, that they found on him after he was shot by l.a. airport police. he is said to be in critical condition at the ucla medical. we believe that all of the people who were shot, all of the people he shot, were employees of the it tsa. one of whom was killed, three of whom were wounded, with varying degrees of severity of their injuries. but that he didn't shoot anyone else. one telling thing is what a witness said, who talked earlier today to msnbc, who said that the witness was approached by the gunman who said, do you work for the tsa. so it would seem to be a combination of anti-government views and some kind of grudge against the tsa. now, there had been some initial reporting from some news organi

the gunman, paul ciancia said he acted alone. the airport in los angeles, what else are we learning about this young suspects planned? reporter: bill, we learned he is pre-much acting alone. that is when he was arrested at terminal 3 behind me on friday. a disturbing plan that seemingly he only knew about because one of his remit stroked him to the airport to talk about a flight other than the suspects say he had one. they didn't know where he was going to anything at all. his roommate say h they had no idea he would get out of the car and opened fire with intent on killing as many tsa agents as possible. as you might imagine, bill, right now the investigation continues to try to find out if there are any answers as to why or what sets this man off for you to bill: what is his status now? there were gruesome photos floating around the internet. >> he is in critical condition. he is sedated because he is trying to recover from his injuries. he was shot several times, in the phase as well, which is part of the reason why he has not spoken any longer to authorities. he is being watched very

in the line of duty since the agency was created in 2001. the suspected shooter, 23-year-old paul anthony ciancia, was charged this weekend with murder of a federal officer, and commission of violence at an international airport. after being shot at the scene of the crime, he remains in critical condition but is not believed to have suffered brain damage, allowing for the possibility he might be able to answer questions at some point. and while the entirety of his motive is yet to be known, he did have on him at the time a letter. which had language associated with the anti-government patriot movement, as well as some additional anti-government literature about a conspiracy to form a single global government. and for more, i'm joined by brand-new grio.com columnist, goldie taylor and founder of stop handgun violence, john rose en that will. i want to start with you, goldie. we have this once again confluence of we don't really know what the motives are, but there was this literature of anti-government random fervor and a gun. what can we realistically attack? we can't deal with people's i
-old suspect. >> we're not learning much about what it is that got paul anthony ciancia interested in the radical right wing views expressed in the one page letter that authorities say he was carrying with him when he fired shots inside the airport. strong anti-government views attacking the tsa, saying that if tsa is going to treat all americans as potential terrorists, then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. initial checks on the computer haven't turned up anything that would indicate what it was that got him attracted to that view in the first place. as for the weapon he took in, he did purchase it legally but they are still trying to figure out where he got the high capacity 30-round magazines he had five with him when he came into the airport. he's still in critical condition in the hospital, not talking. he was shot in the face. it makes it difficult for him to talk, although officials say it does not appear he has any kind of brain injury, so it's the ability to speak, ability to form words that's the problem here, not the cognitive process. but it's not clear how long i
